Stop whatever you’re doing, because Starburst is now releasing limited-edition “All Pink” bags, according to USA Today.  Strawberry Starburst lovers, you can rejoice, as you can now buy a bag containing nothing but the pink flavor of the fruit chews.

The packs will be available in a single stick for $0.99 and a large bag for $3.19 in April for a limited time.  Retailers including Wal-Mart, Target, Kroger, Walgreens, H-EB, Meijer and Amazon will be selling the singular strawberry bags, USA Today reports.

Michelle Green, a spokesperson for Starburst, said, “While everyone has a favorite flavor or color of Starburst, pink has always risen to the top for our fans.  From memes about relationships to sharing photos of excitement when getting a pink Starburst, over half of all references to Starburst on social media are about pink Starburst.”

Starburst first tried a mix of red and pink candies, known as FaveReds, and they have been on the shelves since 2008.  However, Green said that partially pink wasn’t enough.  Consumers wanted nothing but pink, according to USA Today.
